Otter run in Wroclaw Zoo

For the external project we had to calculate the thickness of the acrylic, installation guidelines  and design an otter tunnel. The tunnel was made of 50 cm diameter PMMA pipes' sections and then connected by acrylic collars. 

Thanks to this system, otters may freely move around which is also interesting to watch for visitors.

 

Main part of the acrylic tech is a cylinder surrounded by water that allows visitors to see the otters in their natural habitat.   

It was technologically challenging as the transport and installation of the cylinders was done in two horseshoe shaped parts.
